Frequently Asked Questions
If you are new to the UK independent schools system and don’t know where to start, a consultation with a Bruton Lloyd education consultant is the perfect choice. During the consultation, we will determine the most suitable academic pathway for your child, shortlist boarding or day schools and outline a preparation plan. If you already have some knowledge regarding UK private schools and want to assess your child’s chances for entry to specific schools, a Bruton Lloyd assessment would be the best place to start. We will assess your child’s subject knowledge across the subject spectrum and give detailed instructions to prepare for a successful entry.
A consultation typically lasts 60-90 minutes.
Bruton Lloyd consultations and assessments can be conducted online via Skype and email. Comprehensive assessments for entry to academic schools can be conducted face-to-face at our London offices.

No. We want to see your child’s unfiltered subject knowledge and true personality to provide the most accurate recommendations possible. Therefore, your child does not need to prepare for the assessment, but we may require school reports and some samples of schoolwork.
What’s the difference between a Bruton Lloyd assessment and a comprehensive assessment with a Head of School / Head of Admissions?
A Bruton Lloyd assessment is conducted in-house at our offices with a senior consultant. An assessment with a former Head of School/Head of Admissions of a leading independent UK school is recommended if you are aiming at the top tier Boarding or London schools.
